Description Asgeir Nilsen 2005-04-22 09:12:47 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7.7) Gecko/20050414 Firefox/1.0.3

Description of problem:
Some times, applying an errata might break things, and you would like to roll back a change.  There seems to be no simple, straight-forward way to do this on RHN today.

You have a very good WUI for showing the history of all changes, and, provided up2date repackages, rolling back the change should be straight-forward.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rpm-4.2.2-0.14 up2date-4.2.16-1

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Apply errata
2. Discover problem
3. Cannot roll back automatically!

RHN Provisioning Module ( http://www.redhat.com/software/rhn/provisioning/ )
provides this function. With Provisioning entitlements, all systems maintain a
complete history of snapshots and can be rolled back (as long as they boot and
connect to the network) to a previous state.
